Model Train Sets On Display At Kibbe

CARTHAGE — Two large model train sets will be on display at Kibbe Hancock Heritage Museum in Carthage in the December and January.

For the past several years, Jim Morrison and Galen Wollbrink have set up their model train displays at the museum for public viewing beginning with the Carthage Christmas Open House.

The trains will be shown beginning Thursday, Dec. 2, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the museum during the Carthage Christmas Open House. Morrison and Wollbrink will be on hand to operate the trains that evening. The displays include villages, people, cars and parks with many active parts.

All the other exhibit rooms at the museum are open for viewing.

The museum has scheduled three more days when the train operators will be on hand to show the trains in action. Those special museum days are from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 12, Saturday, Dec. 18, and Saturday, Jan. 8.

Wollbrink and Morrison will have their large model train displays running at these times. There is no charge to enter the museum or see the displays.

Aside from these dates, the museum is now closed for winter. It will reopen for the season on in the spring of 2022.

The museum is located at 306 Walnut in Carthage, one block south of Rt. 136. See information on Facebook at Kibbe Museum Carthage, or call 217-357-9552 and leave a message.
